Except for BUR-DEN (E), the rest of this trip were in Y class, which were eligible for instant upgrades as 1K.
Edit: Cross the last two flights due to delay of DEN-IAH. I do not want to be stuck in Houston tonight. A 1K agent rebooked the DEN-RIC nonstop flight in J, resulting in seven hour layover😂😂 No better option available.

i.e. IAH-RIC cancelled or delayed overnight?

The plane for DEN-IAH hub-to-hub flight was stolen for another flight. There was almost 1-hr delay for this flight. My connection time at IAH would be negative if I took the originally booked flight. Fortunately, I met mpiotrow and he helped me kill part of my layover.

Unexpected upgrade UA1794 OGG-SFO last night. 1K/Chase card. Part of 27.5k award itinerary HNL-OGG-SFO-LAS. Saved about 27k by going via OGG. UA upgraded me twice for the inconvenience Got upgrade text while in 10F. Moved up to 4E before GA arrived w/ new BP.

Both you and your clone were upgraded. There are two names on 4E.

Same for me, especially if it's right at boarding time.

SBA - SFO, upgraded 10 min after 24 hour check in. Email sent this time too.

A short flight but still nice SFO is tough to clear often on this one.

6/30 UA 2276 IAD-LAX (777-200) Y-fare Premier Gold. #32/61. the 50 F seats are fully booked, no upgrades for anyone!

At least I scored a premium plus seat which is decently comfy.

28% or 2/7

Does anyone know if an Air Canada ticketed, United operated flight would be eligible for CPU on the United leg?
